Designing a Hydroponic System

Designing a Hydroponic System

Secondary 1 and 2 students from the STEM Cub embarked on a Learning Journey to Kok Fah Technology Farm in September. Our students went there with a special mission – to learn about hydroponic farming and translate it into designing their own hydroponic systems that they have been working on using the design tool TinkerCAD.

Through a tour of the hydroponics farm, our students learned how space can be maximised to grow vegetables sustainably, as well as the hard work and stages involved in the production and sale of these vegetables. They also learned about the advantages and disadvantages of the hydroponic farming method, and better understood the importance of self-sustenance and independence.
